Activist and advocate Aires Rodrigues has urged Chief Justice of the Bombay High Court Justice Mohit S Shah not to post Judge Kshama Joshi to any of the courts in Panjim as her husband M S Joshi is a lawyer practicing in these courts.
Judge Kshama’s posting to Panjim is expected as Judge Edgar Fernandes from Panjim has been transferred to Vasco where she was presiding.
Adv. Rodrigues pointed out that it would not be fair to have Judge Kshama presiding over courts where her husband is practicing.
He also pointed out that even if Adv Joshi undertakes not to appear before Judge Kshama, other advocates from his office will be doing so.
